I think the butterfly motif on the suit is just femenine...and since she is wearing a suit and it's navy blue, that makes it a serious outfit. She is a woman who means business, but a woman none the less...

Don't get me wrong, she must have had a bit of input, but even presidents Clinton, bush, etc etc, have professionals to deal with writing the appropriate speeches for most occasions, and that typically includes developing the content as well. With the goal that after delivery, everyone will gush that honcho [fillindablank] is so very very eloquent, brilliant, to the point, etc. where as in reality it comes down to having a good professional speech writer!

Yes that is true, but as Isaid earlier, it is all in the way it is delivered and executed. The way it is spoken can make or break the speech.

So why should she tell them what the WHO does?
That would have been quite presumptious IMO.

Also, it was the annual conference of the WHO, European branch, there was no special theme but different subjects.

I think Mary was there to introduce herself as patroness and that's exactly what she did with this speech.

(And as someone with quite an experience in this field
I am absolutely sure she was very much involved in making this speech.
I guess she stated what she wanted to say and someone else put it into words.
And she accepted it or made corrections.
That's how it usually works.
It might be different with Bush, though)

I think she looked absolutely beautiful at this WHO meeting. I didn't like her like at the chineese concert though, but I thought the tunic she wore to the AIDS/HIV thing was beautiful. It IS really funny how awfully little she is showing. She is so lucky ..¨
¨
Here is the speach she held:

Quote:


Regional Director, distinguished guests, it is a great pleasure to say a few words to mark this important occasion ‑ the launch of the European Charter on Counteracting Obesity.

As patron of the World Health Organization Regional Office for Europe, part of my focus is to generate greater public awareness about how important physical activity and a balanced diet are to our health and well-being, and how vital these two factors are in tackling obesity. I have previously referred to my personal commitment to being physically active and eating a healthy varied diet, and in supporting my family to do the same.

The statistics on obesity, so often repeated, are becoming more alarming. Across the WHO European Region, twenty per cent of children are currently overweight, and if the epidemic progresses unchecked, it is projected that one in ten will be obese by 2010. It is now evident that obesity is a major health challenge in the Region, and that coordinated action is needed to address the problem.

The adoption of the European Charter on Counteracting Obesity, the first of its kind in this area, therefore comes at a critical time. I have followed the development of the Charter with interest, and admire the valuable work that has been done to accommodate the perspectives of so many different interest groups. Groups that have been brought together to address a common public health goal.

I would therefore like to recognise the contribution made by the WHO Regional Office for Europe in facilitating the development of the Charter, and congratulate those public health experts throughout the Region who have worked to make it a reality.

I believe that the Charter is an important milestone in addressing the challenge of obesity. And I hope that the action it produces will serve as a turning point to adapt the environment we live in and ultimately enable everyone in the WHO European Region to make healthier choices. I am aware of the efforts of the WHO Regional Office for Europe to promote and implement the Charter, and wish you and the Region’s Member States every success in achieving your goals.

Good luck and thank you.

Thanks Dazzling for the great photos!
In that first picture she looks like she's fighting down a wave of nausea...
Thanks all for the great photos!
In my opinion, I think she looked lovely at the last three events she's been too!

I agree with Caswallan the shoes are great. They should definitely be added to her shoe thread.

sidenote: Is that her slip or something else that is showing right at her knee on the full length pic? I didn't notice it at first but after a second look I did!

It's either a dress or a skirt underneath the coat. The buttons on her coat only go up to the waist. You can see more of the the white material in photos at Danish Royal Watchers:

Best,

Yes, I see now she definitely does have a skirt or dress underneath. I couldn't imagine that she wouldn't. But I just couldn't tell before. In the pics on the Danish Royal Watchers it's obvious that there is something underneath.

I'm loving the hair!! If only I had her face shape, I'd cut my hair like her too! Unfortunately, I have a round face and it would make me look like a beach ball =D.

A pretty spring posy for blossoming Princess Mary


21 FEBRUARY 2007

Crown Princess Mary may be in the latter stages of her pregnancy, but that doesn't appear to be slowing the elegant royal down. Despite being due to give birth to her second child with husband Crown Prince Frederik in May, the big-hearted princess continues with her busy schedule of charity work and royal commitments.
